A Link Combo is a term for a type of combo in the Street Fighter series.
Enabled by positive Frame Data, a link combo refers to a combo that does not have any automatic Cancels involved, such as Target Combos, Cross Rush, or Special Cancels. While link combos can end with a special cancel, a link combo refers to a combo that is done by manual inputs taking frame data into account. An example of a link combo is provided above with Ibuki linking her medium punch into another medium punch then spin kick.
Execution refers to how well a player is able to perform links or other manual activities where the game doesn't allow the player to press in quick sequence. A common term is 1-frame link which refers to an attack that the player has 1/60 of a second to push the right input for a combo to continue. In Street Fighter V the timing for a one frame link was made a lot more lenient to make the game approachable for newer players.
